SOLD Vintage 40s Spectacular Mexican Sterling Silver Carved Onyx Mayan Mask Necklace
1940's Mexican Onyx Necklace
I have seen a few variations of the carved onyx Mexican mask necklace over the years and this is one of the most detailed, and nicest I have come across.
Handcrafted circa 1940's (pre eagle), it has a smooth, carved stone onyx face at the centre, set in a delicate ornate swirl and repoussé border. The side side links are long and generous, lovely proportions of carved onyx with a fine silver channel inlay and an ornate border set on the outside only, four classic repoussé balls links at the nape and a secure tab clasp.
Splendid design, true 1940's piece and finely crafted with a wonderful weight to it, a lovely necklace for anyone with a love for unusual jewellery, and handcrafted pieces.
